Shouldn’t Actors And Actresses Be Locked Up Too ?

 Shouldn't They Be Locked Up Too ?, Children, Rape, TV, Society, Guns,  Television, Breaking News, Videos, Drugs, Worship, Pray, Pain, Kidnapping,

For the past couple of weeks I have been contemplating this post, it deals with some hard pertinent questions that are affecting our societies on a global scale today. We are very familiar with the fact that people who commit gross crimes, whether it happens to be murder, kidnapping, rape, theft, drug trafficking are usually thrown into prison as their punishment and to keep society protected from them. However the hard questions are these: When persons partake in a so called “job” or “career” that promotes, stimulates, encourages and glorifies crime are these persons who advertise crime not responsible for the heinous criminal products they have approved? When a Hollywood actor or actress gets paid for a film that promotes murder – is that actor’s or actress’s salary not “murder money” ?

When a Hollywood actor or actress gets paid for a film that promotes rape – is that actor’s or actress’s salary not “rape money” ? When a Hollywood actor or actress gets paid for a film that promotes gun violence – is that actor’s or actress’s salary not “gun violence money” ? The so-called “freedom” of the media has changed from protecting our children and our adults from suggested crime and graphic obscenities to rewarding those who polish crime by calling it “entertainment” ! The gross repercussions of acting out evil not only affect the viewers it leaves an indelible imprint on the minds of the actors and actresses themselves. Take for example this actress Janet Leigh who acted in a crazy horror film called Psycho, she testifies:

(“I stopped taking showers and I take baths, only baths,” she said. In fact, when the former movie star stays overnight in a hotel or at a friend’s home where only a shower is available, she panics. “I make sure the doors and windows of the house are locked,” she said, “and I leave the bathroom door open and shower curtain open. I’m always facing the door, watching, no matter where the shower head is.” [New York Times 1995] )

I know some will argue that each individual is responsible for his or her actions… but!… but!…but!

Can you tell me what is entertaining about seeing our fellow human beings hurt by Divorce and Cheating Spouses… can you tell me what is entertaining about watching films that portray our children being hurt by Child Abuse… can you tell me what is entertaining about listening to music artists that advertise the worship of “drug money”… can you tell me what is entertaining about seeing a fellow human being commit suicide on national TV…can you tell me what is entertaining about noticing that our fellow human beings go hungry while we spend trillions of hard earned cash in movie theaters, to support demonically motivated films that cause us extraordinary pain? To those who argue that each individual is responsible for his or her actions I ask: Are the Hollywood actors and actresses who act “filth” day to day to go free… shouldn’t they be locked up too… don’t they have a responsibility to stop the crime called “Promoting False Vicious Entertainment”? As Paul said in Ephesians 6:12 – “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Today I stop to beg you to join me and pray earnestly against the “modern-day” principalities, against the “government-supported” powers, against the “depraved” rulers of the darkness of this world, and against the “mesmerizing” spiritual wickedness in high places.
